Healthy Cauliflower crust pizza

INGREDIENTS

  • 650g cauliflower, trimmed, chopped
  • 1 egg, lightly whisked
  • 50g (2/3 cup) finely grated parmesan
  • 80ml (1/3 cup) passata
  • 60g (1/3 cup) Sicilian green olives, pitted
  • 1 Chorizo, sliced
  • 10 fresh thyme sprigs

METHOD

Step 1
Process the cauliflower in a food processor until finely chopped. Place chopped cauliflower in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave on high for 8-10 minutes or until very tender. Drain through a fine sieve, pressing down well with a wooden spoon to remove excess liquid. Combine the cauliflower, egg and half the parmesan in a bowl.

Step 2
Preheat oven to 230°C/210°C fan forced. Line a 30cm-round pizza tray with baking paper. Press cauliflower mixture firmly into the tray. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden.

Step 3
Spread passata over base and sprinkle with olives, chorizo, thyme and remaining parmesan. Bake for 7 minutes or until chorizo is golden.
